Rose Howard has OCD, Asperger’s syndrome, and an obsession with homonyms. She gave her dog Rain a name with two homonyms. Rose and Rain are practically inseparable. And they are often home alone, as Rose’s father spends most evenings at a bar, and doesn’t have much patience for his special-needs daughter. Just as a storm hits town, Rain goes missing. Rose’s father shouldn’t have let Rain out. Now Rose has to find her dog, even if it means leaving her routines and safe places to search.

This book was a wonderful story of a girl you can’t help liking, although she has a hard time making friends in school due to her special needs.  Her relationship with her dog and her uncle keep her grounded, and give her normalcy compared to her dysfunctional relationship with her dad.  I enjoyed reading Rose’s story and would enjoy reading more about her.
